OK back to your original thought. The Mac OS was not really able to handle or recognize the cad type files, your mac version of AC proabably has an extension manager that shoud place the right file ext on the files at import or in the save dialog.
It's mean to be a shock mount. I use it in my shop and depending on the shock mounting width it's adjustable. I find that 1.75 inches on the bottom most horizontal line will bend up to be 1.5 inches which is perfect for most mounts. Its default set to 2 inchs I believing, making the bent finished piece be at 1.75 inches
Not for a Jeep, but related to Jeeps. A couple of brackets for strong anchor points on your trailer. The tie down brackets will fit a 5/16 hook all the way through and a 3/8" hook will grab it. nylon ratchet strap hooks will fit too. The front tie bracket is for self winching or come along just in case your baby needs some help getting on the trailer, same hole/slot size. The bends were done on a swag finger brake easy enough, I put in some bend indicator notches. I made mine out of 3/8" plate, could probably be done out of 5/16" plate, 1/4" would be too thin I think.
This ZJ 1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee Door Patch Panel was made to match either drivers door or passenger front door. Just
flip the piece and counter sink the holes to match which side your
placing the door patch panel on (left side[drivers] or right
side[passenger]. I used 16 gauge sheet steel to have a shop plasma cut the panel. They edited the AutoCad DXF file format 2004 and removed the dimension lines, leaving only the drawing outline, the 3 holes 3/8 in diameter, which enlarged in size from the counter sink operation, and the 4 inside welding holes. Weld a small bead length on the 4 rounded corners, 1 short bead in the middle on the long flat side, 2 small beads near the cutout where the striker plate loop enters the door latch. Put a small tack weld in the 4 inside welding holes, if you need too.
Fred L Finster email@example.com I grant creative commons use of this DXF file that I created on October 29, 2013. I can have a patch panel plasma cut for you, too. Enjoy the pictures.

Reason: Missing DXF file, add to next post. Complete Dangling sentence.
DXF design file attached here, hopefully DXF file and PDF file to print on paper, Inside door picture with hook up of wire strut linkages. The orange piece is missing wire struct linkage to key lock. Notice how the green plastic piece locks in the wire struct from inside door lock button. Adjust your door striker plate with a T50 Torx star bit to the height and adjust in or out to adjust door closing. Forgot to mention using a 4" inch grinder disk to take off the head of the LOWER door hinge pin. Change out the hinge pin and the brass sleeves from the inside hinge. This will raise the height of your sagging Jeep drivers door. If you wait too long to fix this sagging door problem, the striker plate will beat in the door latch mechanism and create cracks in the paper thin gauge sheet metal holding the door latch mechanism. Thus creating a need for this door patch panel plate to weld to the existing door frame to hold the door latch mechanism. So change the lower door hinge pin with a DOORMAN product 38422. Check if upper door hinge pin is a Doorman # 38423, Labeled as a Dodge RAM truck hinge pin. The door upper hinge pin needs a C-clip inserted into the groove at the end of the pin, because it is mounted upside down. This C-clip keeps the hing pin from falling out. On this upper hinge pin, use a dremel 1 1/2" diameter cut off wheel, to slice the middle of the pin, for each end to be removed with out grinding or chiseling the end off the mushroomed head of the existing hinge pin. Hard pin to remove otherwise.
One person on this forum, used a long 3/8 inch bolt with some 3/8 inside diameter spacers to make his own door hinge pin quickly and cheaply from Big BOX store parts.
Hope this DXF file helps you repair your exsisting ZJ Jeep Grand Cherokee door, instead of going to Pick and Pull Junk Yard to find a replacement door with sagging hinges, too.

Update April 18, 2015 Removed old Jeep GC Door Panel DXF file added ZJ_DoorPatchPanelRev2.dxf. I can't seem to open this .DXF file version, with librecad. http://librecad.org Your Autocad Software version may work for you. Good Luck. Fred
Helldorado, are you making it for multiple vehicles or just need one? I happen to have one I will never use nor a late style CJ. It's the same thickness as whatever stock is, I guess. Someone bought it as a aftermarket part and didn't use it, I got it in a trade or something, and will not need it (building a beefier crossmember and bumper combo). It's available for shipping and $15 (beer money).
